As far as stitching goes, I have picked up the needle again. I'm not stitching as much as I'd like quite yet but between work, household responsibilities and my social life it's been hard to find the time. I'm doing well tho. I wanted to update you on Sapphire since it's been so long. She was kind of hidden away to make sure she was safe and with me through all of this. I haven't really had a good place to get her out and work on her due to being on friend's couches and worse since October. Now that I have my own place I can spread her out and get busy. This is where I'm starting today. I almost have Page 3 done so stay tuned for that update. It looks like my grid lines got wet so I will have to find my marker and remark those but I will have to search for that or purchase a new one. I even took her out of my q-snaps to get a few pictures. Feels great to have her out again.
My friend Clare also RAKed me a chart for a stitch along through Love Thy Thread. There were 5 charts to choose from and I picked the Stained Glass one so I will be posting updates to that one as well. With this SAL we get one page per month and work on that until the next page comes out. It just started on the 1st of June and I'm not doing too bad. Thank you Clare for the lovely gift. I have also been getting quite a few girls I chat with on a daily basis to stitch. Between me, Sherry and Clare always talking about stitching it was just natural for them to get interested. However they are great enablers and I could be in trouble for doing this but we will see. Here is the sample pic of the SAL - Stained Glass:
I really like this one because I can choose my own colors. I am pretty good with color and have a natural ability with it so I'm just gonna pull a color out of my stash and add it into this project as I go along. I stayed up way too late last nite working on it but here is where I am as of today. Once I get a bit more done on Sapphire I will go back to this. Here's the pics of where I'm at:
I got my very first smartphone when I started working and since I can't find my camera charger and the battery is dead it was hard to take pictures to update this. Now that I have settled things and started rebuilding to the point where I have a roof over my head and space to spread out and call my own I should be stitching a lot more.
Anyway I hope you like my progress, and I do have a few more smaller projects that I do when I'm waiting at work that I can take with me. Sometimes we have to wait for linens at work and I always have some project with me and will pull it out whether I'm waiting there or anywhere. I will be updating soon!
